Daylily Fever

As we head into August the peak of the daylily season here is behind us. There are still lots of blooms and many will even go into September, but the big show is over for this year. I had many new cultivars blooming for the first time this season which added extra joy.

One can never take enough pictures it seems, and favourites quickly stand out.  I’ve selected a few of the daylilies that really stood out for me in the garden this year. These plants not only had beautiful blooms but also developed several scapes and buds making for long blooming hardy varieties.

Beautiful Edgings is a delicate cream with rose edges and is also fragrant.
